The dealer charges! Lol. Figure $150 if you need an update. However try the transmission reset procedure first. I'll need help from the folks with a gm5 tranny to walk you through it, because I have the gm6. I am not sure if the steps are different.

If that doesn't help, at 98k miles I would then drop the pan and change fluid and filter.

Another possible culprit could be your drive shaft.
